Abstract:

This article studies the dramas El taller (2012) and Liceo de niñas (2016) by Nona Fernández and shows how these works re-think the recent past of Chile and the supposed triumph of the neoliberal project initiated by the military dictatorship. Today, in full postdictatorship, that same neoliberal project shapes a society that does not understand or cannot resolve the contradictions that characterize such a project. Making use of black humor, these two dramas build a discursive image that denounces the contradiction of the latent failure of an apparently successful national project.
